Feature Film from Viral Video Sensation Set to See Theatrical Release Including Live Q&A with Producers Nancy Moonves, Dennis Anderson and Writer/Director Archie Gips
NEW YORK, NY – The DigiNext In-Venue Film Festival announced the theatrical release on Friday, October 19, 2012 of Chloe and Keith’s Wedding, the indie-comedy first made famous when a segment of the film was posted as the 2009 “Clumsy Best Man” YouTube clip. A joint venture between Digital Cinema Destinations Corp. (NasdaqCM: DCIN) and Nehst, the DigiNext In-Venue Film Festival provides opportunities for talented, emerging filmmakers without previous distribution the chance to reach an appreciative audience of targeted movie aficionados.
A special screening of the movie will take place at the Digiplex Cranford Theater on Monday, October 22 at 7:30pm, including a Q&A with the Director/Producers afterwards.
With over 100 million views online plus being featured on numerous television shows including Ellen, Good Morning America and the Justin Bieber feature film Never Say Never, the famous clip of the best man knocking the bride into the pool at the altar is part of a feature length film produced by Dennis Anderson, written and directed by Archie Gips. Chloe and Keith’s Wedding highlights all of the fun, frolicking and hijinks of one of the craziest weddings ever. The film captures the genuine feel of an actual wedding as told through the “found footage” shot by the wedding videographers as well as the guests themselves using flip cameras. This hilarious and touching indie film is truly groundbreaking as it was the first to use a viral video to solely market the film.
ORIGINAL VIRAL VIDEO CLIP: Clumsy Best Man
“It was so exciting to watch the organic growth of the viral video and it is great to be able to have a theatrical release of the film,” said Executive Producer of Chloe and Keith’s Wedding, Nancy Moonves. “We are proud to be able to bring Chloe and Keith’s Wedding to the big screen.”
“It is incredible to have Chloe and Keith’s Wedding on board for the DigiNext Festival,” said Nehst co-founder and Chairman Larry Meistrich. “We loved the original clip and are thrilled to be able to provide an opportunity for this talented film to be offered to movie-goers nationwide.
